It's been another thrilling Matchday in the German top flight, with Bayern München clinching their 24th Bundesliga title on Sunday. We'll be back with a new edition of bulletins on Thursday as the Bundesliga gets into gear for Matchday 31!

Bayern gearing up

The newly-crowned Bundesliga champions have kicked off their final training session ahead of tomorrow night's cup clash, with Arjen Robben, Rafinha and Mehdi Benatia all returning from injuries.

Dortmund heading to Bavaria

Borussia Dortmund, meanwhile, have teamed up to fly off to Munich where they will be facing Bayern in the DFB Cup semi-finals tomorrow night (kick-off: 20:45 CEST / 18:45 GMT), with Mats Hummels doing a good job indeed signing autographs:

Twitter king

FC Bayern star David Alaba has just knocked out this lovely collage:

Stuttgart out on the pitch

VfB have taken to the field in the Baden-Württemberg capital, with the players that featured in Stuttgart's 2-2 draw with Freiburg on Saturday doing running exercises, while the others are training with fitness coach Chima Onyeike, this tweet confirms.

All in a day's work

How should you celebrate winning the Bundesliga title for the first time ever in your debut season? By doing the grocery shopping of course! At least, that was

Juan Bernat

's reaction. Perhaps he's simply stocking up for a celebration at home...

Gauntlet thrown

Bayer Leverkusen are already gearing up for their home encounter with Bayern on Matchday 31, and have issued a provocative challenge to the newly-crowned Bundesliga champions. The tweet below reads:

"Congratulations on winning the title but on Saturday the points are staying here!"

Neuer magic

Manuel Neuer was up to his old tricks against Hertha on Saturday, making the sublime look ordinary. Check out his latest outstanding save on the Bundesliga's official YouTube channel:

Get well soon!

Gladbach fans may still be basking in the glow of moving up to third after the Foals defeated Wolfsburg yesterday, but the mood may be tempered by the news that defender

Martin Stranzl

will play no further part this season due to a knee injury.

Last-gasp strike

Still just waking up? Why not check out the Bundesliga's official YouTube channel for the goal that rubber-stamped FC Bayern's 24th Bundesliga title triumph and simultaneously secured Gladbach at least a place in next season's UEFA Champions League play-offs...

Many happy returns


would like to wish a very Happy 26th Birthday to the Bender twins: Dortmund midfielder


and his sibling


at Leverkusen. There'll be quite a party if the Yellow-Blacks can oust holders Bayern from the DFB Cup tomorrow night...

Timely boost

Pep Guardiola's personnel problems have been well documented, but it would appear there is at last light at the end of the tunnel. After Bastian Schweinsteiger made a goal-scoring return against Hertha at the weekend for a game which also saw long-term absentee Javi Martinez back on the Bayern bench, it looks like Arjen Robben and Medhi Benatia are about to follow suit...

Guten Morgen!

There were joyous scenes on the streets of Munich last night after Wolfsburg's 1-0 defeat at Gladbach ensured FC Bayern cannot be caught at the top of the standings. The 2014/15 champions themselves have little time to celebrate, though, with a DFB Cup semi-final against Dortmund coming up on Tuesday night. The Bavarians are chasing their third domestic double on the spin, as well as a second treble in three years.

Sunday 26 April

Words of encouragement

Unavailable for selection due to a knee injury sustained against Hamburg last weekend, Jannik Vestergaard is nonetheless cheering his side on from the sidelines.

Translation: "Lets go lads. Grab three points."

TEAM NEWS: SV Werder Bremen

TEAM NEWS: SC Paderborn 07

League leaders having a laugh

FC Bayern are loving life at the top of the table if this promotional video is anything to go by:

High spirits

Borussia Dortmund's victory over Eintracht Frankfurt yesterday put the BVB players in celebratory mood, with Henrikh Mkhitaryan, Sokratis and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang hitting the town after the win took them to within three points of the European qualifying places.

Bremen ready

There are still a couple of hours to go until kick-off but the Bremen camp are already in place ahead of their fixture with Paderborn this afternoon.

Plenty to play for

As mentioned earlier, victory for Borussia Mönchengladbach against VfL Wolfsburg would have the knock on effect of FC Bayern München clinching their 24th Bundesliga title, but for the Foals it would also represent a significant step towards clinching the final automatic UEFA Champions League qualification spot.

Contrasting agendas

While SC Paderborn 07 are aiming to climb out of the bottom three with a victory on Sunday, three points for SV Werder Bremen could see Viktor Skripnik's side move within a point of the European qualification spots.

Welcome back!

Hey there folks. After yesterday's drama, we've got another day of guaranteed excitement lined up. As well as some pivotal games in the race for promotion in Bundesliga 2, there are two massive match-ups in the top tier. Relegation-threatened SC Paderborn 07 are up first against top-seven hopefuls SV Werder Bremen, before VfL Wolfsburg tackle Borussia Mönchengladbach, needing to win to keep the title race alive. Anything else and FC Bayern will be crowned champions with four games to spare.

Anticipation growing in Munich

FC Bayern München are one win away from retaining their Bundesliga title, providing of course it's Borussia Mönchengladbach win that is.

Saturday 25 April

Pep rings the changes

Perhaps with half an eye on next Tuesday's DFB Cup semi-final at home to Dortmund, this is a much-changed Bayern line-up:

BVB victorious


beat Frankfurt 2-0

at the Signal Iduna Park to maintain their bd for a European finish. Just look what it means to the supporters:

The afternoon's line-ups:

Check out who's starting for your side this afternoon:

Kalou focused

On the ground where he won the Champions League with Chelsea against Bayern back in 2012, Salomon Kalou will be one of Hertha's key weapons against the champions-in-waiting this evening.

Today mood. #GotYourBack #hertha_Bsc #hahohe

First of five finals

Bottom of the league and in danger of their first ever relegation from the Bundesliga, Hamburg can ill afford to slip up against Augsburg this afternoon.

Good omen?

As Bayern look to wrap up the title this weekend, there is a good omen for them to do at least their part this evening when they face Hertha Berlin...

Derby time

Local bragging rights are up for grabs between Köln and Leverkusen this afternoon. Bayer 04 won the first derby of the season 5-1 - will we have a repeat today against a Billy Goats team unbeaten at home in 2015?

Super Saturday!

Morning everyone. On offer today we have a Rhineland derby, Dortmund vs. Frankfurt and FC Bayern vs. Hertha, as well as three other matches. Quite a lot to get excited about, we think you'll agree.

Friday 24 April

Mainz all but safe

The spoils went the way of Mainz 05 in Friday evening's game against Schalke, as Martin Schmidt's team eased to a

2-0 win

thanks to defender Stefan Bell's first ever top-flight brace. The 05ers have now all but guaranteed Bundesliga football for another season, but Schalke are in danger of missing out on European football altogether after a fifth game without a win.

Ciro relaxed

Dortmund's Italian international Ciro Immobile will be looking for his fourth goal of the season when BVB host Frankfurt on Saturday.

Bayern focused for Hertha

Having discovered their fate in the

Champions League last four

, Bayern are turning their attentions once again to the visit of Hertha Berlin on Saturday.

Wolves wounded

Back on the domestic front, Wolfsburg will likely need to win to stop Bayern becoming champions this weekend, but they will have their numbers severely reduced for a testing trip to Mönchengladbach on Sunday.

Bremen ready for Paderborn test

Werder, seventh in the table, will be looking to beat Paderborn this Sunday to get their Europa League push back on track:

Bayern's route to Berlin plotted

Bad news for Berlin

Up against league leaders FC Bayern München this weekend and looking to throw a spanner in the Bavarians' potential title-winning exploits, Hertha Berlin have been dealt a potential blow with BILD reporting that Dutch winger Roy Beerens could miss the remainder of the season with an ankle injury.

Good morning!

Wakey, wakey, rise and shine - it's the first day of another jam-packed season-defining Bundesliga Matchday! 1. FSV Mainz 05 and FC Schalke 04 will be kicking things off on Friday night but there's plenty more on offer this week and


, as ever, will be bringing you all the best from around the web to get you ready for the weekend.

Thursday 23 April

You can read more on Badstuber's latest injury setback here. You have to feel for the lad, don't you?

Anyway, that's it from us for today, but we'll be back on Friday morning with more build-up to Mainz's clash with Schalke and the rest of the weekend's action. See you all then!


Holger Badstuber's injury curse appears to have struck again. The FC Bayern defender requires surgery on a fresh thigh muscle tear and will miss up to four months of action.

Cool down

Hoffenheim stars take a deserved break after training on Thursday. Markus Gisdol's side face beleaguered Hannover 96 at the HDI Arena on Saturday afternoon...
